Ribs is the type of player who creates back door tap-ins more frequently than he serves up one-timers to the slot. He had plenty of success with Brendan Morrow as his primary finisher in Dallas. He's not dependent on having a sniper on his wing, and could potentially do very well with guys like Brouwer and/or Laich who can handle the dirty work. If you really desire a sniper-type, it would probably be wiser to initially give Wolski a shot than take apart the Ovie-Nicky combo.

I do admit it makes sense from a zone start perspective to have 8 and 9 on the same line.
